A few years ago, a beautiful dog named Cora came to Baypath Humane Society in Hopkinton, Mass. She was spunky and energetic and truly the goofiest girl imaginable. Her spunk made her difficult to adopt out. She was a little too much for some people. But Baypath kept at it - we knew there was someone perfect for her out there. This photo is an outtake from a photo shoot we did to show what a good training partner Cora would be. Soon after, Cora found her forever family. I saw them recently and the glint in their eyes was recognizable. Cora filled their lives with joy and her spunk was just what they needed.

For 40 years, Baypath has been patiently finding forever homes for dogs and cats - 40 years. Imagine how many families have been made whole thanks to my sweet shelter's perseverance. I have volunteered for nearly 8 years, been on the Board for three (chairing the Development Committee), fostered numerous cats and dogs, and, most importantly, have adopted five of my six pets from there. 

2018 marks the fifth anniversary of my first marathon run for Baypath. It was also my first marathon. Little did I know that it would start of tradition of raising much-needed funds, each year, calling on my community to help me beat last year's goal. In those five years, you have helped me raise nearly $35,000! 

This year, I know it's a long shot, but I would love to make my fundraising total an even $50,000! 

You have been so instrumental in getting me through these long, cold training seasons - your joy and enthusiasm for 26.2 miles for the animals makes me joyous and enthusiastic.

So I ask you, from the bottom of my heart and for all the Coras out there, please consider a donation to Baypath. 

With much love and gratitude,

Sandy and my fur-footeds (Riggs, Lily, Fenway, Kai, Papi and Winnie)
(This photo is of my favorite little supporters - M, C, and P. They come out to Ashland every year to cheer me on.)
